Camden has a large range of residential architecture from Victorian terraced houses in the east side of the borough to Edwardian period houses dominating the Hampstead area. The most common style of houses found in the London Borough of Camden are terrace properties and flats, which means there are many shared walls between properties. These walls that are shared between two parties are also known as a Party Wall. A flat dwelling can also be involved in party wall matters as floor/ ceiling partitions are recognised as Party Structures. If you wish to make alterations to any Party Structure, or have received a Party Wall Notice, contact Party Wall London to obtain advice.
A common misconception of Party Walls is that each party owns ONLY their proportional half of the wall. However, as the wall carries out an essential structural duty for both properties, both parties own the entire wall. Thus, it is imperative that you inform your neighbours what you plan on doing to this shared wall.
Party Wall London is able to advice you on projects which come under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. Some common examples include: loft conversions, box dormers and chimney breast removals in the area of Camden.
